Cooking for my parents Day 6 (23/4/2020)

Today I made Gourmet Goulash

This is a picture of me stirring all the vegetables and the beef until it is cooked

You will have to cook the beef first and in the meanwhile cook the pasta then drain the pasta and add the cheese packets once drained. Then in the same frying pan cook up the vegetables and then mix the pasta and the vegetables together.

I will be making another post for all the recipes I cooked this week

See you next time,

Cooking for my parents Day 5 (22/4/2020)

Today I made Rice & Bean Casserole and My mom’s rocket salad

It was very yummy and had lots of cheese: feta cheese, cottage cheese, and cheddar cheese. I think the Rice & Bean Casserole could be better with raisins, but we didn’t have the right type of raisins to go with it.

See you later,

Cooking for my Parents Day 1 (18/4/2020)

Today I made Broccoli Chicken Casserole. Here is the recipe :

This is my brother’s favorite meal, he likes broccoli. Sorry I didn’t take any photos but it was very yummy and it was golden on top. In my later blogs I will take a few photos of me making the recipes, and the recipe, and also how it turned out.

On Thursday I planned all the meals.                   

On Thursday I also put little tabs in all the recipes and put them in the correct order.

On Friday and Saturday I pre-chopped all the vegetables I could.

On Saturday I also made Broccoli Chicken Casserole.

See you Tomorrow,

What is Genius Hour?

We are participating in Genius Hour to end our school year. Students will have time to work on a project of their choice. The students are expected to be productive and creative during this time.  

The schedule for genius hour during English class is below:

  • Sunday, 4 June
  • Monday, 5 June
  • Wednesday, 7 June
  • Sunday, 11 June
  • Monday, 12 June
  • Presentations will be the last week of school from 13-15 June.

Process:

Students:

  1. decide if they want to work by themselves or with one or two others.
  2. formulate a question to answer during Genius Hour.
  3. plan, research and think critically about a topic or their choice
  4. produce something to share with our class and possibly the world

What is it that you love and want to learn more about? 

Just some of our many passions! #geniushour

Let’s Scale-Up Genius Hour

Angela Maiers has inspired me lately. She does that quite often. Now it’s about scaling up Genius Hour. It’s taking “You are a genius, and the world needs your contribution” to a new level.

You can read more at the link above and at Choose2Matter.org, and be sure to read the You Matter Manifesto.

Do you believe it? Yes, I hope you do!

Here are some questions to ask yourself as you plan your next Genius Hour project:

What matters to you? What breaks your heart about it?

What matters to God? What breaks God’s heart?

Consider issues like pollution, endangered animals, slavery, drug abuse, suicide, global climate change, poverty, disease, illiteracy, injustice, intolerance, abortion, bullying, what else?

What are you going to do about it?

How can you join God in working to solve that problem?

Are you willing to suffer for it?

Can you build grit, determination, perseverance, stick-to-it-iveness during your Genius Hour project?

I want you to consider some of these questions
for your next Genius Hour!

We have already had good examples of this kind of genius at work. Like when Jade and Kaylee made many scarves and then sold them at the benefit for Laurel.

 

The world needs your genius!
